First add yourself (or have an admin add you) as a user on the 2nd computer.
Login into your account and start Mavis Beacon.
Create a name and do an activity or two.
Exit Mavis Beacon and open your My Computer icon
Navigate to the following folder:
C:\Documents and Settings\YourUserName\Application Data\Broderbund\Mavis\

Now delete the existing prefs.dat file and copy your prefs.dat file into the "Mavis" folder.
Restart Mavis Beacon and you're ready to go.

Assuming you have not switched to Windows Vista with the new hardrive - as Mavis Beacon 17 does not work in that platform - then-
it sounds as though the file is corrupted. I would uninstall and reinstall the product. Unfortunately, difficult to do with out a cd or good original disk to start from. If you have your order number or purchase numbers when you bought your download, then customer support should help you get a clean download.

Here is some information on system configuration- it is similar for the setup of Mavis beacon 17

I don't know for certain but I have a theory - I believe some programmes collect and use bits and pieces of the Windows operating system rather than being a standalone completely self-contained programme.

I think over time and a number of restarts Windows manages to claw back some of those bits and pieces but not all. This effectively stops the programme working properly or altogether and when it is finally uninstalled the remaining bits and pieces of Windows disappear also so when it is reinstalled some essentials are absent...

Windows can function fairly well with lots of bits and pieces missing.

It is just a theory you understand, based on my experiences and observations.
